I must inject the remark that my bank account is evidence of Amazon's 
accessibility to us.  I guess that, ever since I started shopping at Amazon, 
(on my second day online at that), I'm at least $1000.00 poorer because of 
Amazon.  Okay, let's be honest here.  I'm $1000.00 poorer because of the 
fact that I chose to shop period.  The way cool thing about Amazon is you 
can shop in your pajamas if you want to LOL.  Of course, it's also the 
perfect place for shopping BAREFOOTED too.  Now, for the next step.  If ever 
I get a wireless keyboard, I will try shopping at Amazon from my bath tub; 

Let's just hope I don't come out all wet in the end.

BTW, Where as Amazon didn't behave well at all with Mozilla Firefox and Jaws 
7.0, you will find that, with Jaws 7.1 public beta, it's much better.

Just thought I'd better throw that little bit in there in case some might be

I don't have any trouble locating and using the add to cart button Tiffany.
My bank account is proof of that.  Smile!

Wow. I admit\t that I haven't been on Amazon in about a year and a half, but
I hate shopping there! I never can find the add to cart button, and if I do,
I usually end up adding something I didn't want and missing what I did want.
I prefer Barnes and noble myself.

I think amazon is very easy to use.  They have good prices.  I have never
had a bad experience there and have done quite a lot of shopping at amazon.
The only thing I could say negative about the site is that the pages are
quite busy.  You might find searching for specific words or other navigation
your screen reader offers will help you navigate the pages more efficiently
than just arrowing through the numerous links.  Have fun shopping.

John Moore
I just got a $25 gift certificate to Amazon. I typically don't like
dot-coms because I've heard that they are very unreliable. How
accessible are the web pages at Amazon for screen readers? And, are
the prices pretty good?
